Laurels Update

Well done to our year 6 children who have demonstrated our value of achievement during their assessment week. These termly checks in Reading, Spelling Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) and Maths help inform our teaching and giving the children the best preparation as their prepare for their end of year assessments.

I would like to convey my sincere sympathy for all members of our community who have been impacted by the Israel-Hamas conflict. As a staff, we have spent time reflecting on how best to support any children who are anxious about this and also to make ourselves present to parents and carers too. We will be focussing on the importance of peace, safety and the rights of all children and adults.

Our thoughts are with our community during this period of uncertainty. Brookfield will continue to provide a safe and structured space for all our children and our strong and cohesive community.
